There were only two parties, including ours, that were there for dinner so I expected we would get great service. I was incorrect. It felt like our waitress was upset or annoyed whenever she would come to the table. My two star rating is mainly based on the service as a whole. When it comes to food, everything was a little over cooked: calamari, rare filet came out as medium, and the chicken was cooked pretty well done. There are a lot of Italian style food locations I would visit before this one.
This was an Easter brunch buffet. The quality and variety of food selections was very good. Food items on the buffet were refreshed in a timely manner. Service was good considering it was a buffet.
The Easter buffet was a wonderful experience. Our table was ready and decorated nicely. The food was delicious with a wonderful selection. The waiter was attentive and did a great job of being friendly but not overbearing.
Great food + service. Definitely a $$ - $$$ restaurant (listed as a $)
I'm sorry, but I wasn't expecting much from a restaurant attached to a hotel. But was I surprised! The food flavor, plating, quantity, were all outstanding. We had 6 in our group and everyone was pleased with their dish. #highlyrecommend

Thank you for dining with us and posting your review. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to dining with you again, soon!
It's hard to recommend a place where the service is sub-par. We were not greeted at the host stand as she was getting tables ready and there were people ahead of us waiting past their reservation time for a table for two. While our waiter was very accommodating, waiting for food seemed to take long, and when our food arrived, our salad plates were not picked up. We waited awhile for the check. The food was good. We were placed into a banquet room with large round tables and bright lights. Not quite the ambiance I was expecting. Our waiter dimmed the lights upon our request.
Amy - thank you for taking the time to post your review. I want to apologize for how your evening went. Our host is the first impression someone has and with no one there that just is not a great start. Sounds like several misses on our end and major lack of attention to detail. I have shared your review with restaurant management to use as a training and learning opportunity. I do hope you will give us another try so we can provide you the proper experience. Thank you again.
The food flavor and quality was not good. My husband had minestrone soup, it tasted like vinegar. His salad dressing the house dressing was weird tasting. He had lasagna and it was pretty much sauce and cheese. The sauce was not that great. I had trio of filet. They were each supposed to be a different flavor but all tasted the same. They were each a size of a half dollar. I had a spinich salad. It was the best thing we ate. We went for my husband's birthday nothing was done for him we ordered the chocolate lava cake, it was dry and chocolate didn't even come out. It was paired with cinnamon icecream. Not good at all!! We will not be back. Sad because it is a beautiful place.
My wife and I decided to check out Johnny's Italian Steakhouse for our anniversary. She likes italian and i like steak. My steak was absolutely cooked perfect. Just the taste of the steak itself was unbelievable. I was very very impressed. Ive ate at all local steak restaurants in tge KC Metro area. This steak is by far way above any and everyone else's. My wifes plate was fantastic as well. A+++ all around! From the hostess to tue servers to the chef. It was all absolutely great. We will without a doubt be coming back on a refular basis.

Very nice atmosphere. Dimly lit. Not too many choices on the menu. Plenty of room between tables not crowded even when completely booked

Food was good, price was right, atmosphere was good. They were busy which may have led to sub-par service.

Hi Daryl - thank you for the wonderful review. I will be sure and share your compliments with Erin. We look forward to dining with you again soon!
Have been to Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse before and this was a Valentines treat for my wife. Service was excellent. The noise level from the music play was loud. Adjusted after about 45 mins. I had chicken prosciutto pasta and found the chicken to be on dry side. My wife had chicken perm that was excellent.
Thank you for the review. I have shared your comments in regards to the music with restaurant management. I am happy to hear you did enjoy your meals and hope to dine with you again soon!
Steak and salmon were both very flavorful, but undercooked. Center of salmon was so raw it couldn't be cut with a fork. Service was very good and timely. Ambiance was marginal at best, but we had table closest to hotel lobby. Tables closer to entrance appeared to have better atmosphere.
Hi Todd - thank you for the review. I am sorry your steak and salmon was not prepared properly. I have shared your review with our culinary team. I do hope you will give us another try so we can give you the full Johnny's experience!
Waiter was very good. The food was great, both taste and portions were just right.

Was AWESOME !! Such delicious food. Awesome service!!
Thank you for all the stars! We appreciate the support and hope to dine with you again soon!
Food was average, but prices were high. Had a reservation , but had to wait when they weren’t that busy. They simply need to figure things out if they are going to be successful.
Hi Dennis - We appreciate the honest feedback and apologize for the mishaps on our end. You should not have had to wait when you had a reservation. I do hope you will give us another try. Thank you.
Extremely long wait for just about everything and very mediocre food for the price.
Service was very slow. Fish was uninspiring, too much sauce on the snapper - more tomatoes than fish; out of prime rib - which 3 of us were going to order at 7p on a Saturday night. Chicken farm okay. Salad good. tables next to us out and kept taking photos all night with flash. Not excited about going back.
Food and service was great. Just felt the prices were a bit high.
Thank you for the 5-stars. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Lovely atmosphere. Great food and service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Thank you for the wonderful recommendation. We appreciate the support and hope to dine with you again soon!
Food and service was great!
Thank you for the 4-star review. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Love the food, but don't be in a hurry. No matter when we visit seems the service is slow. Last visit got served by three different people because I don't think they could figure out who we were assigned to and even then had to wait for drinks, water and food longer then any table in section.
Always great food/wine and service. A great quiet find.
Thank you for the wonderful review! We hope to dine with you again soon!
Thursday steak special was excellent!

ask for Gabby! Great servixe
Another Restaurant Week stop. Incredible food from start to finish. Server Deanna was so friendly and encouraged our return. See pictures for what we ordered. Amazing value for what we received as well. Highly recommend.
Thank you for the wonderful review. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed everything! We hope to dine with you again soon!
To be honest, our entire experience was mediocre. We arrived promptly at 11am with 8 people. Our table was ready and our waitress got drinks and appetizer orders right away. We then felt like everything from then on was sub par. It took a long time to order, and what seemed like an eternity to receive our food. It must have been at least 1215 by the time we got it. We specifically came for steak and not a single one was cooked correctly. Most were significantly overcooked, such as light pink centers when medium rare was requested. It wasn't extremely busy but our server didn't clear plates well or check in often. Some appetizer plates remained on the table for the entire meal, even though we stacked them up. She did ok on drink refills. Luckily, the flavor was still great, even though it was overcooked. Once finished, again we waited a long time for the check, I had my card ready when she finally delivered it.
I will go back to give it another shot, but am hesitant to order steak, which should be the specialty. I'm hoping that due to being a larger party right at opening time that this was just a one off...
We had a great date night and enjoyed the restaurant week menu
Thank you for the wonderful review! I am happy to hear you had a great date night. We hope to dine with you again soon!
Plate of pasta was quite small for $30+, appetizers were tiny and not that great. We went for restaurant week, so maybe it was just that menu? Pasta was good, just not a normal-sized serving.
Thank you for the feedback. I will be sure and share your feedback with the culinary team and management. I do hope you will give us another try. Thank you!
We thought we'd try the place on restaurant week so we made reservations. We got there on time and were told that we'd have to sit in open seating in the bar where the bar tender would wait on us. At first we went in there and then my wife thought she would push the fact that we had reservations. 15 minutes later they moved us to a table in the restaurant. The waitress was not dynamic and just adequate,. It probably affected our perception of her that we had a fantastic experience the day before at Maggiano's in OP. Everthing was just OK.
Hi Stan - thank you for the review. I personally apologize for the service you received when dining with us. This is not typical but nonetheless not acceptable. I have shared your review with restaurant management. I do hope you will give us another try. Thank you.
Food was good but too salty for our taste. Nice selection.
Hi Sully - thank you for the review. I will be sure and share your feedback with the culinary team. I hope you will give us another try. Thank you!
SOLID Italian fare! Was very Happy. Willy treated us great glad we have another choice for Italian food! Will return!
Thank you for the wonderful review. I will be sure to share your compliments with Willy. We hope to dine with you again soon!
We opted to sit at the bar to watch the Chiefs game, and while the bartender was very good, overall the meal was disappointing. Two of us had their steak offering, and we both found it to be tough. One had the Marilyn No. 5 chicken entree and she said it was great. I think the noise level in the restaurant itself would be very quiet, as it seemed there was virtually no one dining there. This could be attributed to the game, or the 6 plus inches of snow that had people not getting out to eat.
Thank you for the review. I have shared your feedback with the culinary team to use as learning opportunities. I apologize you had such a disappointing meal. I hope you will give us another try so we can provide you a better experience next time. Thank you again.
The very young hostess spent way too much time visiting with friends who were dining at a table near us. We shared an entree. They didn’t split it for us. Just brought us an extra plate. At this level of dining they should split it in the kitchen.
Michelle - thank you for the feedback. This has been shared with management to use as training opportunity. I have also shared your feedback in regards to splitting entrees. I do hope you will try us again.
